Vulnerability
english

Vulnerability is viewed by many researchers as “a set of characteristics or circumstances, which predispose an individual to manifest problems in adaptation”. Other researchers differentiate risk factors from vulnerability by associating risk with environmental influences and associating vulnerability with the child (Trudel and Puentes-Neuman, 2001).
